It was a week ago that my phone went for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. It was during my weekly sunrise circumnavigation of the island of Key West with my faithful companion on my bike.
I remember the exact spot where we took a few minutes to take in the view, on a bench along the sea wall.
As I was clumsily trying to get Bailey back in the basket to head home, the phone ended up here
That's how clear the water was. So close, yet so far.
It looks shallow, but it's about 6-8 feet deep.
I needed to re-create that morning. I now have a new, functioning phone.

Only in Key West.
I received a new iphone as my gift. Why did I need a new one? Because my 4 month old iphone "jumped" out of my bicycle basket, over the sea wall and ended up in the Atlantic Ocean. I could see it oh so clearly, about 8 feet down. I wish I had taken photos of the many people who tried to help me fish it out with a pool skimmer net, but I didn't have my phone. It could have been a TV show! Eventually, it was retrieved. DEAD.
And here are some photos for all of you snow weary readers.
I love reading Hemingway while I am down here. This was one of his favorite watering holes. There are photos of him on all the walls. Although it is very touristy, I like to stop in to channel my inner Ernest.
This is the Main Street full of bars, restaurants, galleries and shops- home of the Duval Crawl.
(Use your imagination. )
I encountered this lizard on one of my walks.
It scared the $&@& out of me.
